Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES BOTOX INJECTION FOR WRINKLES WORK?
Botox Cosmetic is a simple physician administered treatment. Botox treatment involves the injection of purified protein into specific areas to temporarily smooth lines, wrinkles and furrows caused by excessive facial movements. Botox Cosmetic is one of the most popular FDA approved aesthetic treatments in the world today with over 4 million procedures done last year alone.
When administering Botox in New York City, Dr. Vafa evaluates patterns of facial muscle movement and looks for moderate to severe facial lines caused by the action of these muscles. The location, size and action of the muscles that create these dynamic lines vary among different individuals. Dr. Vafa will mark these locations and administer several tiny injections of Botox Manhattan directly into the muscles that cause these dynamic lines. The objective with Botox is to create a youthful and more relaxed appearance and NOT a frozen or expressionless look.*
Each area requires a different number of units of Botox as determined by Dr. Vafa at our SoHo NYC location.
